Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

On Persistence, Part Deux

I wrote a blog post about a friend of Dan and mine, Mike Banhagel. Mike’s persistence is beginning to pay off. The post received a lot of great comments.

Here’s another story, this time it’s about someone you may already know.

I keep a quote on my wall. The quote is about persistence. It goes like this:

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States

Many of you know Damon Alton. He’s a long time real estate tech industry vet that has worked for all the major players. Damon recently completed writing a book; it’s called “The 90 Day Contract” – A Dating Solution. The book’s premise is that dating sucks and he has a innovative solution for singles to meet and get to know each other. I’ve read the book and it’s truly an awesome idea! Quick hit of the concept here.

Damon successfully used this method while he was single. He was so successful he eventually got married and dedicated the book to his wife (everyone can now say ahhhhhhhhhhhhh).

Damon sent me a photo of his first shipment of books. What a feeling he must of had seeing them for the first time!


Everyone likes to think they can write a book, invent something, start a company, etc. Very rarely does anyone back up those words with actually doing it. Damon did it. Now he’s on his way.

Too bad Oprah is retiring. I can just picture Damon sitting in that chair telling her why people need to stop dating and “get under contract”.

Make it happen Damon! Good luck!!

Support Damon by ordering his new book on Amazon and giving it a good review! Great Christmas gift to give to any single people you may know!! Here’s the link:
